A Motown Christmas [Motown]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
A Motown Christmas is an outstanding 12-track sampler of highlights from holiday efforts like the Jackson 5's Christmas Album, Stevie Wonder's Someday at Christmas, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' The Season of Miracles, all recorded during the label's late-'60s peak and infused with the same beautifully soulful vibe which defined the Sound of Young America at its best. Although the set leans primarily on seasonal chestnuts like "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," and "Silver Bells."

    My Favorite Christmas album

    This is the best Christmas album. Traditional tunes sung traditionally enough but just different enough to relieve you from the ho-hum Christmas carol onslaught.
